Material Handling Equipment (MHE), and in particular equipment found in warehouses and distribution centres, such as reach trucks, counterbalance trucks, pallet stackers and order pickers, etc., are an essential part of any business in the logistics chain, allowing businesses to manoeuvre goods easily between storage locations and vehicles. Unfortunately, there is an element of risk associated with any MHE, especially when it is operated in confined environments and/or around other people.
Without suitable workplace safety and supervision, how are we to ensure operators will continue to perform to the safest and most efficient standards under the pressure of the live workplace, that safety issues are reported and resolved, and that administrative and training objectives are met?
RTITB’s Managing and Supervising Material Handling Equipment Operations eLearning course is designed to do just this, introducing candidates to the requirements of this critical role and the training and safe operating practices that should be at the heart of any MHE operation. This eLearning course is perfect for anyone looking to develop into a managerial or supervisory role within an MHE environment, and for those already in the role looking to improve their understanding of their duties.
